This week in the MKMMA, as I was reading Scroll II of Og Mandino’s The Greatest Salesman in the World and was thinking about all we have learned about how our subconscious works. Basically that each of us are exactly what we will to be and that the vast majority of us are passively willed by our subconscious. I also thought of the Golden Buddah Story. Lastly, I was thinking about some of the content of the sometimes ‘out there’, What the Bleep Do We Know!?. These elements combined allowed be to experience an epiphany.
I am a Christian and fairly well studied but some things you just don’t really get until you you do. I suppose it is the difference between understanding and knowing. This is exactly what happened to me this week. I went from understanding to knowing something pretty important. I have heard my whole life about Jesus’ story of unconditional love. I understood it well enough, I even tried my best to practice it, but it was not natural and certainly not personal to me.
Now it is quite clear to me that Jesus was speaking about loving the original spirit that is connected to Him. This version of us is exactly perfect and exactly as God intended us to be, not unconditional love for the subconsciously driven version of people. Using the metaphor from the Golden Buddah Story is that God has unconditional love for the golden buddhain us, not the stone buddha that we erect with our subconscious.
Now when I look around at people, I see them differently. I see peoples stone buddahs and I see their golden buddahs. I never really saw their Golden buddas before. I am seeing the unconditional love God has for us through my own eyes. Today is a good day; I see universal love.
